Represented by a team of over 80 walkers and runners ,’ Team Katrina’ took to the track at this remarkable event on 16th/17th. March alongside some 4000 entrants.
Akoonah Park was a tent and RV sanctuary for the weekend with two rings of teams lining the route which soon resembled a dusty bush track.
The Friday night Candlelight Ceremony was simply spectacular and set the scene for an inspiring 24 hours of socializing, reflection and genuine community bonding as all the participants came together to raise money for research into the causes of cancer.
In total ‘Team Katrina’ raised a mighty $6700. (incl. Team registrations, book sale, Rotary BBQ, donations and funds from the post event ‘Bollywood Night’ held at St Michael’s Old Church Hall)
This outstanding result ensures that a Research Grant into Ovarian Cancer will continue on for the third successive year in Katrina’s name.
Total funds raised by the Casey Cardinia Relay For Life rose from a staggering $314,000 announced at the conclusion of the event, to a best –ever- in Victoria final total of $395,000!!!!
Thanks to everyone for their wonderful support – we hope you will encourage family, friends and workplace associates to join us next year when the event will again be held
at Akoonah Park, Berwick on Friday/ Saturday 15/ 16th.March 2013
